Some of the most experienced tax litigators at the Bar are members of Devereux Chambers. We have a wealth of litigation experience across the fields of direct and indirect tax, contributions and duties, investigations, proceeds of crime and professional negligence. We have a detailed knowledge of, and feel for, the preparation and presentation of these difficult and sensitive cases and their evidential requirements. We are particularly familiar with advice and litigation about taxation of employees, service companies, agencies and employment businesses, entertainers and sports personalities, tax avoidance and evasion issues, capital allowances, statutory investigation powers and assessment procedures.
Our tax group includes three leading silks; Timothy Brennan QC, Jonathan Fisher QC (both previously standing Counsel to the Inland Revenue), Felicity Cullen QC and a number of very experienced juniors. Our silks have particular expertise in handling individual and corporate domicile and residence litigation, both for and against taxpayers, as well as in contentious cases where HMRC pursue taxpayers in respect of alleged tax avoidance or evasion.
